"Do not grieve, for the joy of the Lord is your strength" Nehemiah 8:10b

Joy (n)
A feeling of great pleasure and happiness.

" runs deeper than despair."
~ Corrie Ten Boom

We named our 6th daughter Joy! :-) There are things that make me happy, of course, like most. But there are only CERTAIN things that bring actual JOY! My husband and my children bring me the most joy of anything in this world. I count myself to be tremendously blessed that I have been able to experience a true, deep, and satisfying joy this side of heaven! :-)

May you ALL find Joy during this season, and all year long! :-)

~ Christa

    I have a friend who asked me some time ago if I had JOY in my life and now you have mentioned JOY too. Not many people know there is a difference between the feeling of JOY and happiness. For me JOY is a gift from God and happiness is something more superficial derived from our surroundings.

JOY To The World!
